For those of us looking to book our next holiday, the recent slump in the value of the pound has really narrowed our options.

With the Euro almost on a par with a pound for the first time, the Euro zone appears far from a wise investment, despite our long-held loyalty to favourites such as France, Greece, Cyprus and Spain.

In fact, back in September, a price index published by the Post Office showed that ten typical holiday items cost half as much in Thailand as in Cyprus; and things have only got worse since then.

The immediate thought might be to go west to the States or the Caribbean to get the best value - but you'd be mistaken as travelling east with holiday costs far cheaper in Malaysia and Thailand than in the Caribbean.

Of course, value needn't mean cheap. It means that whatever level of holiday you are looking at, you will get more for your money by going to the Far East whether backpacking or soaking up the delights of a luxury resort.

Internet operator Senses Holiday are part of the well established Jetwing Group, which has firm roots in Sri lanka and the Indian Ocean - and operate at the luxury end of the scale specialising in the Far East in particular, Malaysia, luxury holidays in Sri Lanka, India, Oman, Mauritius and the Maldives. The company, which offers Spa and Wellbeing breaks, Honeymoons and Weddings and Tours, have seen noticeable increases in website enquiries in the past month as the long haul UK traveller has come to realise that these paradise destinations now look more appealing than ever before.

All Senses Holiday resorts are personally selected by Senses own concierge officers and when the company say the holidays are tailor-made, this is no overplayed cliche - they truly offer a personalised service from the moment you make contact.

The unique Senes booking service enables you to download your preferences from the dedicated website to create a personal brochure, eliminating all the information you are not interested in. From here, the dedicated concierge service will help to customise your perfect package.

If it is a luxury experience you are after, while making your holiday pound go further, then a look at the Senses website is strongly recommended.
